Ice cream in a bag

If you don’t have an ice cream maker, but are craving home made ice cream this recipe is for you.  Of course I found it on pinterest lol. I have made it a couple times. Once with the kids, and this past week with my class as a science experiment.

Here is what you need:

Rock salt or kosher salt


half and half


zip lock bags


In the first bag add 1/2 a cup of half and half, 1 tbsp sugar, and 1 tsp of vanilla. In a second bag put a couple handful of ice and 1/2 a cup of rock salt or kosher salt. Put the first bag in the second bag and shake it up. You will be able to tell when it is ready by look or feel. The bag will be frosty looking.You can add toppings as well. I left it vanilla.

Here are some pictures of how it went at school. My 2 adorable munchkins helped with the modeling.
